Non-at-issue meaning, such as presuppositions and conventional implicatures (cf. Potts 2015 for a recent discussion), and information structural phenomena, such as topic, focus and givenness (cf. Krifka 2008), are topics in their own right that have often been investigated independently from each other. However, recent approaches to discourse and information structure (such as Simons et al. 2011, Tonhauser et al. 2013, and Beaver et al. to appear) have shifted the focus onto the connection between (non-)at-issueness and an implicit or explicit Question Under Discussion (QUD, see Roberts 1996, 2012, Büring 2003).
